Here's how I play it. I kind of cheat by using a capo on the 2nd fret,
but you still get the general feel and sound of the song.

The A9 in verses is played the same as shown above for the intro.
[Em]Children by the [D9]millions wait for Alex [C9]Chilton
When he comes [D9]round
Sayin' I'm in love.... (This part is the same as intro)
Cm7 (Eb??) Bb

That first chord may actually be an Eb, not a Cm7, in which case you
should play it:
[E] [A] [D] [G] [B] [E]  

X 6 5 3 4 3
But that essentially covers all parts of the song. I haven't tabbed out
the lead (anyone else want to give it a shot??), which is played over the
chords from the intro. Hope someone finds this useful.
